SNOUT

Will not the ladies be afeard of the lion?

STARVELING

I fear it, I promise you.

BOTTOM

Masters, you ought to consider with yourselves: to

bring in—God shield us!—a lion among ladies, is a

most dreadful thing; for there is not a more fearful

wild-fowl than your lion living; and we ought to

look to ‘t.

SNOUT

Therefore another prologue must tell he is not a lion.

BOTTOM

Nay, you must name his name, and half his face must

be seen through the lion’s neck: and he himself

must speak through, saying thus, or to the same

defect,—’Ladies,’—or ‘Fair-ladies—I would wish

You,’—or ‘I would request you,’—or ‘I would

entreat you,—not to fear, not to tremble: my life

for yours. If you think I come hither as a lion, it

were pity of my life: no I am no such thing; I am a

man as other men are;’ and there indeed let him name

his name, and tell them plainly he is Snug the joiner.

QUINCE

that is, to bring the moonlight into a chamber; for,

you know, Pyramus and Thisby meet by moonlight.

SNOUT

Doth the moon shine that night we play our play?
